Speaking on the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast, Rob Guest has shared what he saw Tottenham’s new fitness coach Giampiero Ventrone doing after Spurs’ draw with Everton at the weekend.

Guest noticed on Thursday against Vitesse that after the game Ventrone led a very intense warm-down after the match with a few of the players that didn’t complete the full 90 in the Europa Conference League.

Ventrone was shouting at the players making them run drills, ensuring that the warm-down was an extreme one.

Interestingly Guest also noticed the same thing happening after the game with Ventrone leading another intense mini-session.

Guest was speaking about Ventrone’s work after these matches.

“Thursday’s session was extremely intense for the ones taking part. I think there were about nine of them. Tanguy was there, Harry Winks, Davinson Sanchez wasn’t there, Steven Bergwijn was there, Rodon, Alli, a number of players,” Guest said.

“It was under the new fitness coach Giampiero Ventrone what he did was set up a running area for the players that was the width of the penalty area and players were running up and down at various speeds and he was shouting at them. There were a number of journalists still in the press box and a lot of us were looking at the training session and you had to really because of the sound from the coach. He was really shouting at them and getting them to work extremely hard. It was the same again after Everton, there were about 10 of them at the side of the pitch doing these exercises.”

“If it’s intense after the game during a warm-down, you can bet your life that it will be extremely intense in the sessions during the week.”

This is just a sign of things to come at Tottenham.

Conte has been in this job for a week and his staff are already pushing his players to their limits even after matches.

As Guest says, you can bank on the fact that the sessions at Hotspur Way will be equally as intense and it surely won’t be long before we start to see the impact of these fitness sessions on the pitch.
